The Sovereignty Of God

Before we take a look at the Doctrines lets keep in mind one thing and that is that God is sovereign over all of His creation.

Ephesians 1:11 - "In him we were also chosen, having been predestined according to the plan of him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of his will"

It is important for us to understand that God has foreordained everything that has passed and He has predestined everything that will every come, down to the smallest thing.

Romans 11:36 - "For from him and through him and to him are all things."

The universe is not a democracy but is a kingdom ruled by God.

Revelation 19:6 - "For our Lord God Almighty reigns"
